Question & Answer
Question: I'm planning to register my Company but I'm still waiting on final numbers. Do I need to pay for everyone (Participant Fee) before camp or do I just pay the deposit (Group Fee) and register/pay for final numbers (Participant Fee) at the Registration Building?
Answer: The more you register/pay (Group Fees/Participant Fees) before camp the faster the Registration process happens went you get to Camp. However, all we need is your Group Registration to be sent in prior to camp….the Participant Fees can be paid at the door, we prefer the Participant Fee as one total amount (cheque/money/debit), we discourage each individuals from one group paying the Participant Fees separately, it slows down Registration.
Question: I am just wondering about the preregistration? As we plan to send our registration in thinking that we have lots of time. I just realized that there may be a mistake in your paperwork. I am really hoping for early registration and crests for our group. Can you clarify where we stand. I will get it done quickly if we are early registration.
Answer: Crest cost can be quite expensive and takes approximately one month to have them delivered. In the past we have ordered more than campers, this takes away from the Program Budget. So, with Early Registration there are two dates to remember; The first date, in early October, register before that date and you are guaranteed a crest. The second date, in early November, register before that date and you are guaranteed to pay the Early Registration Fee.
Question: I have a group of venturers that are interested in attending this camp and was wondering if Scouter’s were required to camp with them or if this could be an opportunity for them to independently camp this year.
Answer: In the past we have allowed Companies to come to camp without a Scouter. However, over the years as our camp became larger, when occurrence arose, not having an adult present made it harder for the staff to deal with the situation. So, we prefer if Scouters cannot attend camp, that your Company partners-up with another Company that has Scouters that are willing to step in if problem do arise. "Partnering-up" doesn't necessarily mean; camp together on the same site (however, we would but you close together), Cooking together, Registering together. The soul purpose is for the youth to have adults to go to. In the Registration tab we have a list of Companies that are coming to camp.
